„I don’t think that we are a species or a people that can exist without making mistakes somewhere along the line.“

—  Harry Belafonte American singer 1927
Context: I don’t think that we are a species or a people that can exist without making mistakes somewhere along the line. Some make mistakes that are greater than others. But I do believe that we should have the courage and the ability to look at something that we did, even if in the first instance we believed it, when in the wake of the aftermath and the truth, you find out that that was not the case, to then say, 'Let me go back and examine what led me to this conclusion. What gods was I serving? What masters was I serving? What was it all about?' and then try to be more instructive to people who will listen to you. As quoted in Democracy Now! interview by Amy Goodman (30 January 2006)
